In late June, AMETEK, Inc. announced that it had completed its acquisition of MOCON, Inc.--a deal worth approximately $182 million. AMETEK is a global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electro-mechanical devices. MOCON is a provider of detectors, instruments, systems and consulting services to research laboratories, production facilities, and quality control and safety departments in a number of industries, including food, beverage, packaging and environmental.  

“We are pleased to have MOCON’s team join the AMETEK family,” says David A. Zapico, AMETEK CEO.

“As the global leader in gas analysis instrumentation for package and permeation testing, MOCON helps us expand our gas analysis instrumentation business in the growing food and pharmaceutical packaging markets.”

MOCON joins AMETEK as part of its Process & Analytical Instruments Division within AMETEK’s Electronic Instruments Group.
